Looking for an opportunity to get involved and make a difference? Enjoy working in a team and being challenged? Do you need volunteer hours?

Volunteer with Opera Atelier, and donate your time and energy to support a world leader in the rediscovery and revitalization of period opera and ballet - a true gem of the Canadian arts and culture scene. We depend on our dedicated team of volunteers, and they are integral to our success.

Opportunities for Volunteers

Work side-by-side with the Opera Atelier to prepare mailings, stuff envelopes, and other key administrative tasks during the work week (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm).

Get incredible behind-the-scenes access by volunteering at exclusive Opera Atelier events. Many of our special events feature presentations by our artists, design team, and artistic directors in an intimate setting.

Volunteer at the annual Versailles Gala – the most glamorous event of the year – and help support our education, outreach and artist development programs. Join us as a greeter, live auction spotter or silent auction assistant.

Volunteer Benefits

As a volunteer for OA we value your commitment to our company. We know you could spend your time and energy contributing to any number of organizations, and we are so pleased you have chosen us. We like to provide you with tokens of our appreciation whenever we can!

We couldn’t produce the beautiful things you see on our stage without your help, so we want to share them with you. We are delighted to be able to offer each active volunteer one ticket to each show. Opera Atelier staff will help you redeem this offer (which may be restricted to specific dates).

We can also provide you with volunteer hour documentation and letters of reference, should you require them.

If there is anything else we can do to make your experience positive or to show you our appreciation, we would love to hear about it! We are always striving to improve our volunteer program.
